cloth peg iconography

Look what a lovely happy mundane find Designboom found- It’s a great exhibition happening in Isreal that is all about Clothes Pegs (or clothes pins, as we say here in the States.). Yoav Ziv and Gad Charny have collected over 300 pegs, old and new, from all over the world. It’s such a basic yet useful item that can be used for so many purposes. It crosses cultural boundries since it’s such a simple concept, and yet has so many variations. The exhibition is curated by Yaacov Kaufman and is on display June 16th, 23rd, and 30th at Kaufman’s studio in Jaffa, Isrea. Designboom has a great article that goes into a deeper discusion on our helpful friend. read more here.
